Craft Spells – “Komorebi”

homepage_large.f0fe0ed1Craft Spells is the recording name of California native Justin Vallestros. His work can be described as music that is simultaneously introverted and extroverted in personality, and that conflict really makes the sound quite unique and remarkable. He has the tendency to be mysterious and expansive, but can also bring out the bright side and create stunning, shimmering orchestral tracks, like his new single “Komorebi.” It sort of takes after some of the songs on Craft Spells’ debut album Idle Labor, where eighties influence ran rampant and things were a bit more optimistic. I guess what I’m really trying to say is that “Komorebi” is definitely the ray of sunshine in an otherwise black and white album. In fact, the very word komorebi is a Japanese word that loosely translates to “sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees,” something that is the very description of the song itself. There are stunning, vibrant orchestral melodies, Japanese style musical influences, and is so very peaceful. “Komorebi” is from Craft Spells’ new album Nausea, which was released earlier this year.
